    Cointray/Cardtray jammed

    Hi guys My cointray got jammed today, I don't know how as there is not much in it. It's recessed into the center console (see pic) and when I press into it it doesn't move at all, so I don't think anything is stuck as then I should be able to feel it move even slightly. Any ideas on what to do...

    Advice please!!! £1000 to spend on modding 2008 S3

    Hi all, my 2008 S3 warranty is coming to an end in the next couple of months. I was wary of doing any mods before this happened so I am now researching it a bit more extensively. I think it's also a good opportunity to freshen the car up a bit after 3yrs ownership as I have no intention of...

    Unexpected RNS-E message - "police announcement"

    Every now and then when playing mp3s from an SD card in my '08 S3 the music will stop and a black screen will come up on the satnav screen "Info. Important Message. Alarm!". This is accompanied with a message on the DIS saying something like "758 Test" (I forget the actual number). Nothing else...
